Gregory Haynes is working on Kobby featuring collaborative text editing in your favourite KDE text editor as a GSoC project. He started to wrap the (still unreleased!) libinfinity (my infinote implementation) API for C++ for this task. I'm really excited to see other collaborative text editors coming up that work together with Gobby, since this is exactly one of the reasons why I took the burden to write the library in GObject-based C.
Speaking of which; I didn't blog on it for a long time. We have moved to git in the meantime. I'm currently working on porting Gobby to use libinfinity instead of obby, heading towards a first usable release, so that the hard work pays off. There are still some things in libinfinity that need to be fixed (performance issues, a few known bugs and way more testing) which are probably easier to fix when a usable Gobby version using it exists. I hope to have these done in a few months, though the most difficult part is always to get the little details right, which is probably why I'm not good at meeting (self-set) deadlines.
